Population PyramidThe number of people living in Australia, together with Estimated resident population
their demographic characteristics and distribution across the country, is an important influence on many of the dimensions of progress mentioned in this publication.

Similarly, many of the dimensions of progress influence the size and shape of Australia's population.

This commentary provides some contextual information about the population and explains some of the links between changes in population and dimensions of progress.

In doing so, the aim is not to answer questions
about whether, and to what extent, Australia’s
population should grow.
